    This is what you are looking for. ServoCity was convenient. I believe Radio Shack also carries an inexpensive one. Without your location, it is hard to guess what might be available in your area.

    Basically, they will have slots for two sizes and each slot will have a double crimp area One part of the crimp is for a small length of wire with insulation to give support, and the other is for the metal-to-wire crimp for electrical connection.

    What's your application?
    Does the crimp have to meet any military or industrial specification?
    Is this just something you're doing as a hobby on the side?
    There are a lot of generic crimpers that will work, but if you're doing something
    that has to meet a standard, you need to stick with what the manufacturer recommends.
    If you have the part number, you can contact the manufacturer and find out what types
    of crimpers they recommend for your connectors.
